I have been preparing for the start up of Stamp Club coming up on Friday, but I needed a little break and some inspiration for making my nephew's birthday card, so I headed to the A La Card Monkey Challenge #92 where "anything goes" this week.
I don't have very many boy stamp sets, so this card is about as boy-ish as I could get with what I could find in my stash and because my nephew is only turning six...I can still get away with "cutesy". I decided to play with the pinwheels again, but opted for cutting them out of the Big Top Birthday DSP instead of stamping.
I added some dimension with the "Happy Birthday" curled up a little. I probably could have added another pinwheel now that I see the extra white space, but the card is already in the hands of the six-year old, so I can't do anything about it now! :)
